SOURCE: Keep blowing ECM fuse on 90 honda accord

I'm thinking the ECM is bad and grounding out, causing the car to blow the fuse. The old gas wouldn't cause this problem.

My 1998 Volkswagen Beetle keeps dying.

With the car running rough it could cause the harsh shift but if it is staying at 5000 rpms then the ****** is about to go out on you. The rough idle sounds like a vacuum leak. If you can keep the car running at idle listen for a sucking type sound. That would indicate where the vacuum leak is.

Not sure about the idle speed thing, but it sounds like one or more injectors is dripping (not fully closing). That would cause the smoking/gas smell. You should take them out and have a specialized shop like RC Engineering clean them. Might also be the idle issue.

Car starts hard runs good on highway stalls if i dont keep my foot on gas have to push gaspeddl to floor to start replaced plugs wires also idle control in throtal body

So IAC has been replaced. Sounds like a dirty throttle body, EGR valve, or vacuum leak. DId you do the maintenance yourself. If so then you should be able to inspect Throttle Body to determine if black and dirty.. this can cause intake problems leading to your issue adn rough idle. EGR valve sends exhaust gas back into combustion chamber to reburn it and make car more environmentally sound. If stuck open it can allow too much exhaust into combustion chamber causign a lean mixture, too much air can cause this.. Vacuum leak can also allow too much air in. Start with easiest and check Throttle body, then EGR valve, finally for vacuum leaks. Depending on your skill the EGR can be cleaned as can the throttle body.. a good link for TB cleaning is A vacuum leak may be harder to diagnose. You are compensating by depressing gas pedal telling ECM to send more fuel to motor to overcome this issue thats why it will run and start with gas pedal pressed.
